Rocky Mountain Majesty: 18 Spectacular Wedding Venues in the Rockies

John Denver knew what he was talking about: there's nothing like being "Rocky Mountain High" in those "cathedral mountains" of the West... especially for your "I do"s. As the largest mountain range in North America, stretching over 3,000 miles across multiple states, the Rockies provide a diverse range of venue options and (of course) postcard-perfect backdrops for your celebration. From luxe Front Range ski resorts in Colorado to rustic ranch retreats in Wyoming's Teton Range to peaceful riverside meadows at the base of Idaho's soaring Sawtooths, we've compiled some of our favorite venues for your spectacular Rocky Mountain wedding.
